Toshiba Reveals “Glasses-Free” 3D Tilt Tablet

3D seems to be the biggest technology available to us at the moment, what with 3D films virtually flooding out of cinemas across the land. With LED ultra-thin home TV’s on the increase in sales and on the decrease in cost, 3D view in your own home is where it’s at.

Unfortunately though some are happy to jump straight on the bandwagon to own the latest device, others find fault in the fact that to view comfortably you have to wear the 3D glasses.

Tim at PR News reported that these issues got Toshiba thinking, and spurred them on to design the glasses-free 3D 12.1-inch screen with self-adjusting display. This clever set-up uses a six-axis accelerometer which tilts the viewing angle as the tablet is moved. With this tilting movement the viewer is given the opportunity to see the object on the display at different angles, giving it a 3D effect.

If this sort of technology interests you then it’s definitely worth heading over to Engadget to catch a glimpse of their video about the Toshiba tablet. Tell us if you have been put off 3D viewing by the additional glasses. If this prototype by Toshiba is opening the way ahead for glasses-free TV viewing, do you think that we will soon see new 3D sets hitting the shelves?
